Feeding Your Newborn Workshop
Mama, are you having a hard time breastfeeding your baby?
Have you tried everything to help your baby with feeding but they're just so unsettled or not gaining weight so you've made the switch to formula? Or you're still feeding but really doubting your milk supply?
Are you pumping to try and keep giving your baby breastmilk because they are now refusing the breast?
Is pain, cracked nipples, blocked ducts and mastitis making you doubt whether you can continue to breastfeed?
Or, is you baby colicky, unsettled, constipated or refluxy?
This workshop is for YOU, Mama.
We can see you are doing the very best you can and we're here to provide you with the latest evidence-based information you haven't heard anywhere else!
In this practical workshop that will see you learn:
Why it's not your fault!
That breastfeeding takes two to tango!
That baby's role is crucial, and if they're struggling with function then breastfeeding can be challenging.
And what you can do that'll make a true difference to how your baby is currently feeding, whether breast or bottle!
Find out how your baby is functioning, what could be going wrong and gain the support you need to really make a difference to your child’s feeding.
Join your hosts Dr Amanda Watson (Chiropractor) and Emma Maher (Lactation Consultant and Midwife) in the beautiful lounge at ACCC. Between them, Dr Amanda and Emma have had over 15 years experience working with new babies to improve feeding outcomes.
The workshop runs for 1.5 hours. You are welcome to come with your baby and make yourself comfortable in our lounge area where the workshop will be facilitated. We have a change table and plenty of space to bounce and rock baby if needed.
